Biscondini Organ Trio - Lockdown
Ten grooving and “radio friendly” jazz, RnB, soul and rock tracks from Los Angeles supergroup Biscodini Organ Trio. The Hammond B3-guitar-drums format is among the most durable combo configurations in the music. But its elasticity was perhaps never tested as greatly as on the Biscodini Organ Trio’s remarkable new release Lockdown, which was recorded and co-produced remotely during the nationwide pandemic quarantine of 2020 by three gifted, versatile Los Angeles-based musicians. –Chris Morris // I’m not one to ever toot my own horn, but I’ll toot it for this band. This band is killing, and it stands up to anything that’s out there in this genre. –Anonymous Biscodini Band Member
After releasing the well-received Compost Nu Jazz Selection Volume 1 (released November 2017) and Volume 2 (released July 2019), Art-D-Fact and Rupert & Mennert again join forces. The third Compost Nu Jazz Selection probably is the most diverse one so far. The track selection process was a pleasant ride through a lot of groundbreaking releases between 1999 and 2004. Selection #3 also contains some memorable tracks which were only released on vinyl by Compost Records, for example the wonderful Grand Unified VIP Mix of Joseph Malik's 'I Don't Want' and Steppah Huntah's energetic broken-beats creation 'Walk This Step'. The continuous mix of Compost Nu Jazz Selection Vol. 3 kicks of with the powerful multi-tempo remix by Quantic (Tru Thoughts label) for Kyoto Jazz Massive's 'The Brightness Of These Days'. With 'Corso' and 'Catalpa' Beanfield features with some true percussion-rich listening pearls. Both tracks were part of the classic 'Human Patterns' longplayer, released back in 1999.
